The hypocrisy of the left wing is becoming increasingly
stunning. Liberals’ righteous dismissal
of opposing opinions one minute and their feigned devotion for open-mindedness
the next is simply too wonderful for words.
Wall Street Journal columnist William McGurn has reported
several instances of the anti-Trumpians (who were so vocal about Trump’s
purported divisiveness and intolerance) total inability to maintain civility
and decorum, let alone to exhibit tolerance.
The left’s bigotry took center stage as V.P -elect Pence and
some of his family attended a play only to get bullied by the cast during their
curtain call. A CEO got himself fired,
(yes, a la “You’re Fired” by Trump)
for making death threats against the president-elect. Another CEO (of GrubHub) e-mailed employees
that they had no place at the company if they agreed with Trump. And a fashion designer declared that she is
so fervently against discrimination that she would never design a dress for the
first lady-elect. She said this just
after she called for “respect for all lifestyles.”
The left’s vehemence is so intense that it almost takes your
breath away, even as they verge on snuffing out those who think differently. Yes, they don’t stop at words; they have
Their victims include a middle-aged man dragged from his
car, a teen-age girl beaten for wearing a Trump hat and a university student
chased down and hit at a Black Lives Matter rally.
This liberal political intolerance demonstrates the extent
to which the leftwing has made politics its religion. In a sweeping example of mind-bending
hypocrisy and projection they have made the political order their God and they
consequently deny the validity of any others.
Just as they accuse others of doing, they express only
disdain for those who think differently than they do. And, when they have the power to do so, they
permit no dissent from their dream-state.
It is manifestly apparent that the liberal cry for non-judgmentalism
applies only to their own beliefs and objectives: Deconstruction of marriage, destruction of
the innocent and vulnerable, discouragement of the productive and dissolution
of any remaining remnants of Judeo-Christian morality in the social order.
In order to accomplish the latter, massive numbers of
immigrants, many of whom bring values that clash with traditional U.S.
principles, have been introduced, in great part illegally.
Americans have been tongue-lashed into being broadminded and
welcoming to those who are different. They
have been told ad nauseam that there
are no absolutes, that all ideas and every ethos have equal validity and everyone
should be tolerant of whatever others do.
We are paying the heavy price of our tolerance for some of
the progressive ideas ideas that washed ashore:
Divorce as common as marriage, children suffering from family break-up
and absentee mothers, over 50 million Americans MIA from the abortion war, the
economy flagging as the hard-working and diligent are crushed under high taxation,
severe regulation and ever-increasing litigation.
The left has succeeded in elevating its version of
“tolerance” to the apex of the American value system, leaving much of society
to fend in a culture framed by the lowest common denominator.
Apparently the left can pretend to possess the moral high
ground when holding the reins of power and setting the cultural agenda. It serves its interest to have those who are
not on their side to be ever so tolerant.
But, when the screw turns and the left is out of power, it
no longer throws up the pretense that tolerance is the supreme virtue after
Since the hypocritical left can’t summon the sincerity to
walk its talk, all the wind should come out of its ‘open-mindedness’ sail.
We need not apologize for not tolerating evil, stupidity,
and unrealistic projects that fly in the face of accepted wisdom which
took thousands of years to form.
Maybe we would be better off to know what we believe and why
we believe it and then not tolerate syncretism to creep into our proven belief
Could this be what the Second Commandment is really all
Could its meaning extend beyond just wood and stone
idols? Could its wider application be to
not tolerate all kinds of false gods, whether these are physical idols
fashioned by our hands or conceptual/political idols fashioned in the sometimes
dark recesses of our minds?
If so, then it is in our manifest interest to quench our
desire to introduce our own ideas of how nature and the universe should operate
and quietly, happily and humbly submit to the laws of the creation as we find
them. For, if by chance, there is a
Creator, to do otherwise will result in anarchy, pain and death, both
individually and culturally.
